Potable Water Pump?

My new travel trailer is on a permanent site, without water. I have been filling the fresh water tank with 5 gal. containers. Does anyone know of a small pump I could use to transfer water from the jug to the holding tank? So I don't need to lift these heavy jugs.

Thanks Much. Happy camping!

Home Depot, Lowes or any hardware store, has sump pumps. If you only use it for fresh water they will pump quite a distance and quickly.

I used a 12vdc RV water pump. With 3' of vinyl hose on each end and a 10' cord with cigarette lighter plug that goes into the bedroom window and plugs into a 12vdc receptacle........that was on my old coach.
The new one has a vinyl hose that connects to the fresh water system for drawing anti-freeze from a container into the water lines or water tank depending which way the valve is turned.

Go to the Farm Fleet store and look for a 15 or 20 gal. sprayer tank with a 12 volt pump clean and sanitize and fill with water and pump away. Ask for a portable sprayer tank for an ATV set up.
